This Matters Greatly: Tom Steyer Set to Enter Democratic Primary Field

Billionaire Tom Steyer, whose two issues are climate change and impeaching President Trump, intends to enter the Democratic primary potentially this week.. This actually matters greatly. Steyer could spend $1 million a week on ad buys in early primary states without losing sleep. The guy is the ultimate self-funder. In a crowded field he can carve out a niche for himself as the one guy not bought off.

Steyer will, of course, be one of the 235 million candidates on the Democrats’ primary ballot and his entry comes after the first round of debates. He’ll have to boost his name ID and his grassroots appeal, but he has the money to do so.

He matters as a candidate because of his money.  He matters because he’s a billionaire donor to the Democrats who is signaling he thinks the field sucks.
